Our Mission

The Story of Hope United Methodist begins long ago. The Church dates back to the original Bedford Methodist Episcopal Church in 1830 - started by the Rev. John Crawford, a Circuit Rider. In 2013 Hope United Methodist came to be as a merger of Bedford First United Methodist, Hathaway United Methodist and Maple Heights United Methodist congregations.

The Mission of Hope United Methodist is to be a Community of Faith Meeting People at the Crossroads of Life to Make Disciples of Jesus Christ for the Transformation of the World.

Hope United Methodist is part of the East Ohio Conference and Northcoast District of The United Methodist Church.
